Sony rolls out sleek Xperia S with 720p screen
CES 2012: 12MP camera, 32GB storage, Bravia engine
Sony has officially announced its first Sony branded phone in a decade. The outfit bought out Ericsson and dropped the Sony Ericsson brand late last year, and now it’s on track to invade the Android smartphone in style.
The Sony Experia S is the first smartphone from Sony’s NXT, or next generation series. Looking at the spec, the new Experia lives up to the next generation promise. It features a 4.3-inch 1280x720 screen, 12-megapixel camera and 32GB of internal storage. Performance should not be an issue, as it boasts a 1.5GHz processor and 1GB of memory, with LTE to boot. In addition, the phone has PlayStation certification and boasts Sony’s Bravia Engine for some additional image quality.
Sony knows a thing or two about industrial design and we believe the new Experia is one of the best looking Android phones on the market today, if not the best. The uncluttered design looks great in white or black, and the phone looks very sleek and thin. The only downside is the OS. Yes, it’s Gingerbread, but Sony claims it will offer an ICS update shortly.
